      1. The words… they all don’t come through for me. It’s not pulled up as text on screen, but looks preformatted somehow, missing words? sighs Maybe it’s a WordPress hiccup. Lol.

  1. “are you doing it because it makes you happy or because the world told you to?” So this is what I see. And it actually pulled an answer out of me. Because I have been thinking lately. I realize that I am doing some things because everybody else seems to be doing it so it must be the thing I should be doing. Sounds like I am doing it because the world told me to, doesn’t it? Thank goodness I am becoming aware of this.

    1. Awareness is always key. I think we all do certain things because we’re conditioned, but some of these things can also make us happy, right? It may not always be so black + white.

      I always appreciate your insight. Thanks for taking time to comment.

  2. I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately and realized that I’ve been holding myself back in some ways because of other ppls opinions.

    I currently want to change jobs. Initially I was going to quit my job by a certain date and even if I didn’t get a new one by that time, was going to still quit. But people have been warning me against it and I know they have good intentions, but I’ve held it off bc of others and I’m simply not happy with holding myself back anymore. This job makes me feel stagnant and like i’m not living up to my potential.

    But yeah I realised upon reflecting that I have to just go for it and do what makes me happy not society or others around me. Even if I fall flat on my face, at least I can say I tried!

    1. Exactly! This is not a rehearsal. Do what feels best for you in this one life. I think falling on your face will be a much better outcome than wondering “what if?” for the rest of your life.
